Job Alerts

It can be hard to keep a so many details in your head and be sure that you checked everything. WinBidPro 16 can now help! WinBidPro 16 will perform various checks automatically and alert you to problems, or warn you about potential problems. It does this via the "Job Alerts" view. The kinds of things it can catch are:

  • Misconfigured parts. In some scenarios we can see when you have entered a part in the wrong component or if the part has some wrong settings
  • Missing system components. For instance, if you have glass next to an entrance, but there is no pocket filler configured for the door jamb, we'll give you a warning about it.
  • Issues with elevation commands. For example, if you add an entrance and a later change to the elevation causes a conflict with the entrance.
  • And more!

To navigate to the job alerts view click the Job Alert Status icon beneath the elevation tooltabs.
